FIFA President, Gianni infantino to earn less than a quarter of what Sepp Blatter earned

FIFA president Gianni Infantino will be paid a salary of 1.5 million $1.53 million a year, less than a quarter of that received by his predecessor Sepp Blatter, soccer’s world governing body announced on Wednesday.

Infantino, who was elected on Feb. 26, will also get a “car and lodging free of charge during his term and contribution to expenses in accordance with FIFA’s expenses regulations,” FIFA said in a statement.

He is also entitled to bonus payments, though there would not be any this year because the bonus system had been open to “dysfunction and abuse” and needed to be reformed, FIFA said.

“Bonus payments from 2017 onwards will be awarded in accordance with objective criteria related to FIFA’s mission and operations as well as the outcome of the organizational reforms, now being implemented,” said the statement.
